experience with boeing 777 jets had anything to do with this accident. they will try to determine what went wrong. investigators this morning, we've seen some activity out here on the runway. they are continuing to document the wreckage of the aircraft that still sits on the runway here at sfo. now, according to the airline this, was a training flight for the man at the controls. the pilot identified as -- as lee gang-guk. the plane careened out of control and caught fire. the pilot at the controls is quite experienced with more than 9800 hours of flying time. but he only logged about 4300 hours in a of the -- 43 hours
in this type of plane. i asked the head of the ntsb what they are hoping to learn from the pilot. >> i think we understand what was going on in the cockpit, how they were communicating with each other and monitoring air speed. we want to know whether they were flying the plane on auto pilot. we have quite a few questions for them, not just one. i think this goes to not just what happened but why it happened. >> reporter: the black boxes recovered over the weekend, suggests the pilot realized he was about to stall seconds before the crash. he tried to abort the landing seconds before but it was too late and when the plane struck the ground, investigators sa
e plane was flying significantly lower. investigators are looking for any video, surveillance or otherwise that might give them a better sense of what went wrong and why the flight crashed over the weekend. the ntsb will continue their -- continue gathering evidence out here at the crash site here. continue again with interviews with the crew later on today and they plan to hold an update on their investigation at 11:30 this morning. we're live in morning at sfo. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. there's an investigation into whether one of the 16-year- old girls who died actually survived the crash but was hit and killed by an emergency vehicle on the tarmac. the girl was found near the evacuation slide. medical examiners say there were no extensive burnses on

gonna be there, you would still have delays because of the weather and the fog. let's bring steve in. he will talk about that. this is a look at the peninsula here. you can see the traffic here. let's bring in steve. he will talk about the fog. >> there's plenty to go around. almost every location says cloudy. some of that fog producing misty conditions. you get the low 50s in the overcast. it will be a little warmer inland. not a lot. cooler, wednesday, thursday. and it looks like a slight warmup. no big changes. the big dome of high pressure which was parked over us last week, moved off over towards colorado, new mexico. that just allows the fog to burn off slightly sooner. it won't make a difference for the coast and bay. inland temperatures will come up and get back in the 90s.
50s, thigh. livermore was 53. now they are 58 but 52 for santa rosa about an hour ago. that's pretty chilly. a lot of 50s including san jose, 56 which went from mostly sunny to mostly cloudy. there's generally an onshore breeze to a sea breeze. it will start to warm up. with the delta breeze in place, it kind of holts things in check. so fog, sunny, it will be nice for some. and some locations getting back in the 90s and i mean it will be hot for a few. it's almost a typical summertime pattern. these are very cold. it's pretty tough to get that warm and also with this much fog. 60s -- 60s, 70s. fog, sun, warm on tuesday. here comes the cooldown. the m it looks like things turn around. slightly warmer weather on the
weekend. 7:11. we have an update on the breaking news in oakland that's shut down several streets. these are -- these are live pictures. you can see all of the police activity. oakland police were called to a home neermt east 21st street at 1:30 this morning and say the man in the home had some sort of medical emergency. he was taken to the hospital. that's where he died. no shots were fired in the incident, but there were, ation you can see, a large number of police cars rushing to the area. an oakland police public information officer is on the way to get us information. a lot of police officers on the scene, tori. we'll investigate and bring you all of the tee tails as to what happened out there as soon as we get it. >> yeah. so if people are wondering what being on the the -- wondering what is going on. >> yes. >> the streets are blocked off. there's people people.

>> reporter: the head of the ntsb says there's no indication in black box recordings that the boeing was having any trouble until the final seconds to the impact. she said the pilots were flying too low. the pilot had nearly 10,000 hours of experience flying other planes. but only 43 hours at the hem had hemle -- at the hem. of a 7477. >> we're looking -- at the helm of a 747. >> we're also looking at other things. >> reporter: they will inspect engines and other gear owned by asiana airlines and korean air. back to you. >> thank you. a new animation illustrates what investigators and witnesses say happened the
moment asiana airlines flight 214 crashed at sfo. the animation shows the plane hitting the sea wall, the tail of the plane breaking off, the plane skids, goes up in the air, spins around and spashes back down. it eventually settles in a grassy area and the fuselage starts to smoke. there have not been many plane accidents at sfo. these are pictures from 2008 when an electrical fire broke out. before that, you have to go boock 1972 when a cargo plane crashed into the bay just after take-off. in 1971, there was a passenger crash on pan as am. and in 1968, japan airlines flight landed in the bay. again, in that incident,
everyone made it to safety. we're finding out more about shots fired from a sheriff's deputy. the marin county sheriff's department says the deputy fired shots at a suspect on turner drive. when the suspect's car -- the deputy was also hurt when witnesses attacked him with rocks. police in vallejo treating the discovery of a body found on friday as a possible homicide. no information has been released yet about whether it's a man or a woman or the identity. if you have any information, call vallejo police. this morning, one person is still unaccounted for afterral fire left dozens of people homeless in redwood city. at least 21 people were hurt when the fire start the just before 2 -- started just before 2:00 a.m. on yesterday.

assembly. now it moves the state. if it becomes law, they would be the second state after vermont to give condoms to prisoners. steve paulson says today and tomorrow will be the warmest day of the week with the change coming by on wednesday. also, one man captured the deadly plane crash at sfo on his plane crash. his reaction to the shocking images he saw. traffic is moving along very well here until you get to the macarthur maze. then you will -- then you will slow down.
the man who took the video the moment of asiana plane crashed is talking about witnessing the deadly crash at sfo. >> came face to face and then kind of aerodynamically hovered
in the air and crashed. >> fred hayes says he and his wife were watching some planes coming in. he said the nose was pointed up and he heard a big boom and saw the plane bounce e said he hope -- bounce. he said he hope the video helps with the investigation. well, 19-year-old david shimle along with six other students and an instruct ear went to korea for a competition. shimle says the trip was trouble-free until they approached sfo on their way home. and he felt a bump. >> the first bump was not scary. it was kind of like a roller coaster there. once we got sideways, we started to -- fetal position and getting scared. >> shimle says his group was seated together right in the middle of the plane. they are all doing okay. in fact, shimle taught a tae
kwon do class yesterday. our coverage continues online at that's where you can find the raw footage and see more photos and videos of the passengers ebs caping -- escaping. >> let's check in with sal castanedo. the bay bridge still crowded? >> it is. but it's a different type of crowding. there have been a few things that have popped up. it looks like this vehicle had to be pushed out of the lanes. last week, it was terrible without b.a.r.t. let's take a look at northbound 101. that traffic looks very nice heading over to the middle of downtown. southbound 101 looks good to
the airport. looking at the silicon valley, 85, 17 are looking good into saratoga. 7:24. let's go to steve. plenty of low cloud, fog, and temperatures really not -- it's hard-pressed to warm up that much when you get this much of a fog beige. there are indications that some of the inland locations will bump up. there's plenty of low clouds. 50s, mainly. one 60. that's at moffett. we had low 50s this morning. and just had a report from fred up at bear valley village, 49 degrees. high pressure wind is out for a day or two and then a low- pressure system moves back in and cooler weather moves in for wednesday and thursday. 90s through the interior. some 80s but again, only the most inland locations will warm up that much here.
the pattern looks like it will be stuck here for a couple of days. a little cooldown takes us wednesday into thursday and then a turn around on the temperatures as we head towards the weekend. investigators continue to gather information about the deadly crash at sfo. >> oh, my god. what the [bleep] happened. and more flight delays are expected today. how people are coping with the news it might be a few more days before they can fly out. >> heavy police presence has blocked off a couple of streets. we'll give you the very latest coming up.

plant in connecticut to be torn and examined. it could take months, maybe years, to determine the probable cause of a major crash. passengers are being told to prepare for more delays at sfo. one of the reasons, is a typical one. weather. ktvu reporter katie utehs is at the airport talking to people who have been stuck there since saturday. >> reporter: good morning. three of the four lanes are now open. runways are open. that's good news. some of the backlog is clearing. some people have been stuck since their flights were canceled on saturday. i spoke to one woman trying to get home to south korea. she's traveling with her 2- month-old son. >> it's hard. i think he's doing well. >> reporter: there are many tired and weary faces. but some of the backlog appears to be clearing. the flight board remains on

average. slight warmup on tuesday. it looks like we settle in on friday and then a slight warmup for inland temperatures on the weekend. dave and tori? >> thank you. more delays expected today for passengers at sfo. >> i'm getting home wednesday at 5:00 a.m. >> more on what you should expect if you are heading out to the airport. and the ntsb investigation into the crash is moving fooshed. later today, investigators plan to sit down and interview the pilot of the flight. what they hope to learn from the crew. >> reporter: three people will undergo surgery today from the crash according to doctors here. more when "mornings on 2" continues.

the pilot at the controls has been identified as lee cook. he had only logged about 43 hours in a boeing triple 747. he's still in the process of getting his license for that particular aircraft. do you think he had enough experienced flying the plane? >> we know the airline has released information about ther experience -- about their experience overall and also their experience in the -- in these flights. >> reporter: federal investigators say the pilot realized he was about to stall seven seconds before the crash. he tried to abort the landing.
when the plane crashed investigators say the aircraft was flying significantly below its target speed. the ntsb chair told me that's certainly a point of certain for investigators. later on this morning at 11:30, the ntsb is planning to hold an update on their investigation. we'll have full coverage for you later today on ktvu. we're live near sfo, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. there is also an investigation into one of the -- into whether one of the 16- year-old girls died survived the crash but was then hit and killed. the girl was found near the evacuation slide. medical examiners say she did not have expensive burned on her body and her injuries are consistent with being hit by a vehicle. the san francisco fire department said it's possible it could happen in all of the chaos. an autopsy could be completed. this morning, we asked the ntsb
about it. but they are making no comment. the other teenaged girl appears to have died after being ejected from the plane. school officials in china reportedly say the parents of those two teenaged girls will fly here from the u.s. to china. they will be accompanied by ten other sets of parents. they will first stop in shanghai to get visas before boarding flights straight to san francisco. asiana airlines reportedly is making the arrangements. a few hours ago, several passengers hurt in the asiana airlines crash left sf general hospital. but some of the passengers are still there. paul chambers is live to tell us about their injuries. good morning, paul. >> good morning. we're told to expect an update later this afternoon. we were told that three people will undergo surgery today. she also said that two people -- two people will be paralyzed

slow. they are communicating with each other on the cockpit voice recorder. there's a recognition that the aircraft is belee their target speed and they get a stick shaker activation. that's really significant. that's telling you about the airline is about to stall and they really don't have a lot of altitude at that point to recover. >> reporter: the head of the ntsb told us the aircraft was flying significantly be -- below their target speed and they -- the chair told me that the fact that the pilots didn't realize there was an issue seven seconds before the impact is a concern and one they will zero in on. the head of the ntsb is telling investigators, they've seen this video, that shows the flight still in the air and shows the impact. she said the investigators are still trying to get their hand on that piece of video and are
